Yet to try out Fast Travel Games’ excellent 2018 VR adventure, Apex Construct? The perfect opportunity now awaits you.
The Swedish studio today launched a free demo for the game on Steam. It supports the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets and lets you play through the first level. That should help you get to grips with the game’s first-person action gameplay. In Apex Construct, you explore a post-apocalyptic world ruled by warring AI factions. Using a trusty bow and arrow, you do battle with drones and solve puzzles.
To mark the demo’s launch, the game is also 50% off on Steam this week, available for $14.99.
This demo arrives shortly after Fast Travel revealed Apex Construct sold the best on PSVR. A tweet from CEO last week confirmed that 58% of the game’s sales have been on PSVR, with a further 23% on Steam. The Oculus Store took another 19%. PSVR has had a demo since May of last year which may have helped sales. It probably has something to do with the fact that Sony’s headset is thought to have the largest install base across all major headsets, though. PSVR has shifted over three million units.
If you’re yet to play Apex Construct we definitely recommend giving the demo a shot. “It’s a rare chance to jump into an expansive journey and become a part of an engrossing world, warts and all,” we said in our review. “It proves that VR developers can now deliver the adventures we dreamed of having when we first picked up our headsets.”
